If you want to restore the default system fan control and HWiNFO doesn't do it, then you should completely power off the machine, remove battery, wait a few minutes and start again.

What is happening, is only one of the fans working ?
You might try to run a DELL Diagnostics utility to check the fans. I'm not sure if your BIOS also contains a diagnostics section.

HWINFO64 SETTINGS...

Uncheck EC Support under "Programs -> Settings -> Safety" and THEN be sure to go to the Sensors section and disable monitoring of "DELL EC". Link to a great guide for you. http://imgur.com/a/UYC3s#0
